Lost & Blind.....

            Lost & Blind.....

Though life on earth is as a breath

In Christ’s eternal hand

And though eternity starts at death

The world can’t understand

 

Life’s future facts she fails to see

Drinking Satanic brew

Her children think they’re high and free

While sin obscures their view

 

The world can change through Jesus’ love

Her children’s robes of shame

Can find through Christ life’s path above

If she would call His name

 

We all; may share the change she makes

Help speed life’s righteous course

If we repent from past mistakes

And seek no wayward source

 

Through Christ we too! God’s Word may spread

May show His love is true

So grace may heal, may raise the dead

May lead to life anew

 

That Christ may use us as His tool

We’ll walk toward life’s dawn

Refuse to play the devil’s fool

Refuse to be his pawn

 

We’ll open wide our neighbour’s eyes

Assist deaf souls to hear

Reveal the world demonic lies

Removing doubt and fear

 

What greater joy can come one’s way?

What greater thrill divine?

Leading someone to life today

Still drunk on Satan’s wine…..

About the Poet
I never wrote a word of poetry in my life. Till the day Jesus took my hand and touched my soul.....I invite your response. However most poems are not about me! Very few are. But the feed-back good, bad or indifferent is always desired. Not meant to offend, but I write about many things in many a guise. Of life, death, lost, found, saved, backsliders, new comers, repenting souls, doubting hearts, heathens, Christians, fire, water, Satan's daughter, wallowing in sin, saved, made sound walking in Light, graceful righteous. Suffering, ecstatic, bored, excited, sad, delighted, Sick, well, lame, able, living, dying, etc. etc. etc. Writing about anything, everything and everyone as the spirit leads. All meant to reveal, waken, revive, encourage, shame, help. Gladden, pick up, exalt, portrait, liberate. Again over 99% of my work is not about me. Although at times I write as though I were or am. Speaking e.g. in the first person. This is quite common even in the bible itself. Prophets speak of themselves, then God speaks, again the prophet, then God......Quite often it's difficult to distinguish whom it is that at any given time is speaking or narrating.
